Gwalia's Big Day Out

Gwalia's Big Day Out

Gwalia staff on the pirate shipLast Tuesday (22nd July) saw our first family fun day for Gwalia tenants held at the LC Swansea.

Around 280 people attended, with some travelling from as far as Kidwelly and Rhyader to join in one of the many free activities on offer. A number of workshops from jujitsu and balloon modelling to drumming and children’s rhyme time were on offer, along with craft sessions making loom bands, tile painting, kite making and more.

The Playright pirate ship was a big hit in the sunshine surrounded by a market of around 15 stalls and the Community Housing Cymru (CHC) ‘Your Benefits are Changing’ Bus.

We also managed to raise an amazing £188.91 on the raffle and tombola towards Street Football Wales Homeless World Cup fundraising campaign.

Many thanks to all the staff, tenants and contributing organisations for making our inaugural Big Day Out such a success!
